Description

A Rockhampton Art Gallery exhibition

Under my skin presents a collection of photographs by contemporary Australian artists that challenge a long-held perception in Australian culture that suburbs, and congested urban living, represent mediocrity and consequently a bland life devoid of spontaneity. Instead, many artists recognise the suburb as a complex site: a tangled web of homes and hospitals; service stations and fast food restaurants. It is a playground for popular culture, but equally a place to explore sub-cultures.

Other artists show that inherited suburban anxieties persist. Memories and dreams are pervaded with threats - real or imagined - about what goes on behind closed doors. The domestic sphere is also a space for the weird or the aggressive; the melancholic and the beautiful.

Under my skin is drawn from the collection of Pat Corrigan AM, a generous supporter of contemporary Australian art.
